Books are an important part of my life. And I am a purist. No e-readers for me.
I do not understand people who say they dislike reading. Not people who claim not to have time to read, although really, if one wants, one can find the time even if it's only a few pages a day. But I mean people who flat-out do not like to read. They usually are very proud to tell you that too, but I find it shameful. It is a mark of being uneducated.
Of course, there is no shame in lacking education. But acting uneducated, that is something else and indeed shameful.
